Noah Purvis Admits His X-Rated Past Got Him Cut from 'Love Island'

Monday October 12, 2020

Last month Noah Purvis was booted from CBS's "Love Island". He arrived on Thursday and was gone by Sunday. The reason?

"According to the 24-year-old star, he was 'eliminated' from the show after producers learned he previously appeared in adult films," E! News wrote in an interview with Purvis.

"They decided to pull me because they found out that I had been in pornography in the past," he told E!

"They said, 'You're going to be eliminated from 'Love Island,'" he recalled of his conversation with producers. "I was shocked. I was like, 'What do you mean? I have only been here for three days. I have done everything I was supposed to... I am being myself. What am I doing wrong?'"

The producers answered: "'You are doing great. You just didn't tell us something you had previously done. You went by another alias.' And as soon as they said that, it clicked in my brain... that I had buried this thing that I had done, which is pornography."

Purvis said he was "crushed," adding "I felt like I had disappointed people, not just the producers, but my family, because they had no idea about these things, previous people I have dated, I just felt like a failure."

He also shared that it affected his mental health, expressing, "I had a meltdown." He explained that he was sent to see "a therapist right away."

According to the star, he is still in therapy and has been opening up about "the things that I have done in my past and why I was off the show."

Purvis claims that he was "promised" the adult videos would never surface and that he had "forgotten about these things," despite the fact that his videos were released by the gay porn studio Corbin Fisher from May to September of this year. He appeared under the name of Ethan in the videos.
